Lately, there has been a spate of such phising mails. So, to those who just own a PayPal account, let me leave a big warning about phishing.
What is phishing? It is something someone do to fish for your password and you will get pissed if you took the bait. Hahaha, lame joke, I know.
The above mail is NOT from Paypal. They provide you a link which will not go to PayPal but some some dubious site. When you click on the link, you will see a site very similar to PayPal and if you unknowingly key in your password, the site will know your password and next thing is, they will withdraw all your money.
So, never, ever click any link like this.
1) Always access your PayPal account from your browser or type in their url : https://www.paypal.com/
2) Never use the same password for all your online business. For those that involve money, use something totally unique from the rest.
3) Use a mixture of numbers and letter.
There are many other ways. But just remember, don’t get fooled.
